Preparation

Step 1

1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
2. Best results are obtained by pre-baking graham crust. Follow manufacturer’s directions.
3. In a saucepan whisk together sugar, cornstarch, flour and cocoa powder. Whisk in milk, egg yolks, salt and vanilla extract. Whisk mixture constantly over medium heat to a full boil.
4. When mixture bubbles and is thick remove from heat and stir in butter. Pour in pre-baked pie shell. Place in refrigerator and let cool completely, at least 2 hours.
5. Meanwhile prepare chocolate shavings. Best results are obtained if chocolate is at about 75°F. Using a vegetable peeler, shave chocolate in same manner as peeling a carrot.
6. For whipped cream, use a cold bowl and whip together cream, sugar and vanilla until firm peaks form. Decorate pie with whipped cream and chocolate shavings. Refrigerate at least 2 hours.
